Moneycontrol.com reports that Bajaj Auto Ltd (BAL), the popular Pune-based motorcycle manufacturer, plans to launch a more powerful model in the Avenger lineup. The upcoming product will share its engine with the Dominar 400 and will rival mainly the Royal Enfield models. The 373cc Avenger is likely to go on sale at an ex-showroom price of Rs 1.25 lakh. The Bajaj Avenger 400 launch date is very likely to fall in the first half of 2018.
Bajaj Avenger 400 Launch Date and Price
|Minimum||Rs 1.25 Lakh|
|Maximum||Rs 1.4 Lakh|
Bajaj has a habit of pricing its models ultra-competitively. Most of you would remember that the Dominar went on sale at an astonishing Rs 1.34 lakh. Now, it seems like its Avenger’s turn to surprise everyone. We are expecting the new model Avenger to go on sale in Rs 1.25 – 1.4 lakh price bracket. The Avenger is currently on sale in 150cc and 220cc engine variants. The most expensive model costs roughly Rs 90,000. Speaking about the Avenger brand, a senior Bajaj executive has said:
The Avenger is a very strong and old brand for us. And there is a good amount of brand recall for it. We have been working on an upgrade for the Avenger but we will have to take a call on this at a later stage, we have still not decided anything concrete.
Bajaj Avenger 400 Specifications and Mileage
|Engine||373.2 cc, single-cylinder|
|Maximum Power||34 PS (Expected)|
|Maximum Torque||36 NM (Expected)|
|No. of Cylinders||1|
|No. of Gears||6|
The Avenger will use the Dominar’s 373.3cc single-cylinder engine that benefits from a triple spark technology and liquid-cooling. For the Dominar, the motor outputs a maximum power of 35 PS at 8,000 rpm along with a peak torque of 35 Nm at 6,500 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed transmission. For the Avenger 400, the motor will offer a slightly different state-of-tune. We are expecting slightly lower peak power and higher peak torque to suit the characteristics of the upcoming cruiser motorcycle. We also expect the new model to get ABS, at least an option.
The Bajaj Avenger 400 is likely to offer a fuel mileage of upto 28 KMPL on the highway. In the city-riding coditions, the average mileage could drop to as low as 24 KMPL.
